Let’s all raise a cup of coffee to toast the success of Oracle Mobile and Chatbot!

A few years ago, Oracle unveiled Oracle Mobile Cloud Service (MCS), the first step in our ambitious mobile-first strategy. MCS enjoyed tremendous success, in some cases helping customers garner industry accolades for their mobile apps.  Both Forrester and Gartner recognized MCS as an industry leader. Impressive? You bet. But it was only the beginning.

“Oracle is in the Leaders quadrant this year, which is a move from the Challengers quadrant in 2016. Oracle has achieved a significant increase in MADP sales, primarily from its Oracle Applications installed base. It continues to build on its platform with chatbot support and expanded analytics, and to enhance its high-productivity development tool” (Gartner)

Just a few weeks after launching Oracle Cloud Platform for Mobile and Chatbots Oracle earns a spot in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Mobile App Development Platforms. 

No matter what your favorite hot drink is – whether you’re a flat white person or a short macchiato or a ‘long-black-with-a-dash-of-hot-milk” like me today I’d like to conduct a bit of an experiment with you. Have you ever asked a Conversational Bot driven by AI to order coffee for you? No? Well today you can with the Oracle Coffee Bot! Are you ready?

  1. Hopefully you have a Facebook account. If you don’t I’m sorry at the moment the CoffeeBot is available for the following channels: Facebook Messanger and Amazon Alexa. We’re working to make it accessible from a simple Web Page or within a Mobile App.
  2. Search for @anzcoffeebot in Messenger to find the page easily or open the CoffeeBot Page in a separate tab and click “Send Message”. This Bot was originally built for Telstra Vantage hence the name “TelstraCoffee” 🙂
  3. Well now all you have to do is ask your “BaristaMadeBot” what you’re after and just converse with it!
  4. Has the Bot submitted your order? Awesome! We’ve received your order, you can see it yourself here. If there was a Barista serving coffee now at a Coffee Cart near you you’d enjoy your coffee or tea. Don’t worry the ANZ Digital Experience team wants to meet you, so we’ll try and set up a Coffee Cart powered by the Oracle Coffee Bot in your city. Just let us know!

I hope you had a bit of fun with the Bot. If you want to know what runs in the “backstage” of the Coffee Bot and how Oracle Mobile Cloud enables you to build intelligent chatbots that connect to any backend system please continue reading. You won’t be disappointed!
